The China Compulsory Certification mark (CCC) covers a broad range of consumer goods, electronic and industrial products; and compliance with the mandatory requirements is a precondition for entering the Chinese market.
Products listed in the Catalogue of Products are subjected to compulsory certification. The list currently contains about 20 broad categories and is constantly expanding.
The certification procedure includes factory inspections, type testing at a designated Chinese laboratory, and marking of the product, which can be time-consuming and work-intensive for EU SMEs.
In this context, the EU SME Centre will host a webinar to answer the key questions faced by SMEs when applying for the CCC mark in China:
• When does the CCC mark apply?
• What are the technical requirements?
• What to do? Step-by-step guidance on compliance;
• What are the main challenges and how can you overcome them?
